    On the other thing, there are plenty of abandoned villages here in the mountains, Spainish side. I am still convinceed one could be picked up really cheap and you would have half the buildings in place already. If there is real interest give me a shout. I have a few people here who would be interested.

    Hmm, this sounds interesting. What elevation? What are the winters like? Overall climate? How much rainfall? What would something like this cost? What about folks who aren't local (out-of-country)? What are the roads like? Transportation is always an issue.

    Those solar generators are good. I have one at home here. And if one was a bit of an engineer much can be handled without electricity.

    Elevation between 600 and 1500 metres depending on village.
    It snows, good ski resorts. LOL I feel like an estate agent.
    Very good climate over all with its own special micro climate. There is the National park of the Pyrenees just a few Ks away with trees growing at very high altitudes due to the good micro climate.
    Rainfall is ok but there are plenty of mountain rivers in the area.
    Local? Don't think it is a problem. I think they would sell the things for 1 simbolic euro if you had the right plan for the vilage. They want to rejuvinate the area. Roads are great, with a new tunnel going through the mountain to the french side.

    I am looking at a solar oven Parabolique from India. They do ones for industrial purposes.

    Could do anything on them. Hot water, Electricty cook and dry food.

    Oh, I like this.

    Water is very important. Which one is closet to a river? And how close to the French boarder?

    I'm sure with all the talent we have we could come up with a valuable cottage industry to market like vertical aquaponic gardens run on solar power for the balcony or south window gardner.


    We can all purchase Yurts and set up immediately. http://www.ulaantaij.com/what_is_a_yurt.html and http://www.ulaantaij.com/photo_album_mongolia.html

    By the way. Take a look at this stove. http://www.fourdog.com/

    Just put some fire bricks on top and make a stove top oven. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhY0oAv34fk&feature=relmfu

    Then put a brick over the top and in front to enclose the space in the middle. Bake bread in a can.

    The residents of Milton Keynes have been doing that for decades. All a bit Logan's Run!

    Floyd I have family in MK, what are you trying to insinuate? I suppose MK is not the best example, but you never know what the future might hold.


    Phew, there's some reading to do here.. I have a lot of catching up to do since I'm currently at least 18 months behind you Lawlessline.. Perhaps someone should create a thread called "All talk and NO Imagination"?
